The Cultivation Path of a 78-Year-Old Woman
(Minghui.org) I am a 78-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner who only attended one year of elementary school. Nevertheless, Master Li opened my wisdom and I can read Dafa books and record the names of people who quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Before practicing Dafa, I suffered from heart disease and many other illnesses, and was bedridden. Doctors told me that there was no hope for recovery.
Then, my neighbor's daughter introduced me to Falun Dafa. I had practiced many types of qigong prior to that with no improvement in my health, so I was skeptical. She suggested that I give it a try and took me to the park to learn Falun Dafa from the local group.
I came down with diarrhea and vomited three days later. I complained to my neighbor, but she explained that Master was purifying my body and I would be better by the afternoon. Sure enough I recovered by the afternoon. From this experience, I came to believe that Falun Dafa is good.
Firm Belief in Dafa
I came down with shingles in 2001, but did not worry about it. I knew that I was paying off karma. I lost a lot of weight and the pain kept me awake at night. I said to Master in my heart: I firmly believe in Dafa. It took two months for my recovery.
I fell while taking a bath at a bathhouse in 2005 and my right arm was broken. I wrapped my arm in a towel and went home. Although my neighbor, the owner of the bathhouse, insisted I go to the hospital, I refused. Two months later, my right arm had recovered all on its own. As my relatives and my neighbors witnessed this recovery, their attitude toward Dafa greatly improved.
Escaping Persecution With the Fa in Ones Heart
I was arrested in 2005 for distributing Dafa informational materials. The police demanded I tell them the source of the materials. I claimed to have obtained the materials at the grocery store. I was released that day.
I was arrested again in 2012 for telling people, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told the police. “I am over 70 years old and have not committed a crime.” I told them the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
While being interrogated, I sent forth righteous thoughts, so the computer they used would malfunction and not be able to record their notes. They moved the computer to another room, but it still did not work. Two policemen were extremely rude, so I sent righteous thoughts and they came down with a bad stomachache.
The police head wanted to detain me. One of them took me to the hospital for a physical and the doctor believed I had tuberculosis. The police still took me to a detention center, which refused to accept me because of the doctor’s diagnosis. I was home by midnight.
I realized that when facing tribulations one must stay calm and not panic. One's first thought should be of Master and Dafa. When doing things according to Dafa, one can overcome anything.
Changing the Heart of Police Officer
When talking to a man he claimed that he worked for Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime. I told him how Jiang persecuted people who practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance (the principles of Dafa). I also told him that if he followed Jiang, he was being persecuted too.
Then I said that as long as he stops any wrongdoing, quit the Party and its affiliated organizations, and recite, “Falun Dafa is good,” he would benefit.
His attitude changed and he became friendly. We walked around a park and he indicated a place where I could enter because the fence was broken. I said I am a practitioner and would only use the main entrance. He smiled and said that I was truly a good person. He agreed to quit the CCP, thanked me, and said “Falun Dafa is good.”
The Power of Dafa
My husband developed a tumor on his neck in 2007. The tumor continued to grow and by 2015 he had to tilt his head to the other side because of the size of the tumor. At a hospital, the doctor said that my husband was too old for surgery and at risk of facial paralysis.
Our three sons did not know what to do. I said to them: “Do not worry. Master will take care of him.” My husband and I began to recite “Falun Dafa is good” together and studied one Fa lecture daily. One month later, the tumor shrunk to one third its size and had disappeared within three months.
The residential community guard and neighbors witnessed my husband's recovery. They wanted to know what had happened.
“The hospital refused to perform surgery,” I told them, “He recovered by repeating Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They were amazed and agreed to quit the Party.
Then my husband fractured his leg in a car accident. The driver wanted to take him to a hospital, but he refused and the driver called me. I said that if my husband did not want to go to a hospital, I would look after him. I told him not to worry, that I would not come after him for money later. I told him about Falun Dafa and he understood and said Falun Dafa was good. He tried to give me 1,000 yuan but I refused to take it. He withdrew from the Party. My husband recovered in two months.
I have many stories about family, friends, and acquaintances witnessing and experiencing the power of Dafa. Falun Dafa is and will always be a part of my life.
